Unlike 5th av, here you feel safe. There is a good amount of shops, prices are pretty high but not even close to the hotelshop. I recommend a visit! If you try you might get a good discount...

It was very handy to have a small mall located across the street from the Viva Wyndham Maya. For those that don't want the hassle of heading into Playa del Carmen, this is helpful to be able to quickly shop for snacks and souvenirs.

We visited Plaza Playacar a few times during our two week stay and we did actually buy a few souvenirs and we also used Maya Tours to book our trips. There are maybe 10 to 15 shops and then a few stalls, they don't hassle you too much, certainly nowhere near like in (5th Avenue) Playa Del Carmen anyway. There's... More

Stay away from this poor excuse of a tourist shopping plaza. Complete rip off, actually threatened to call Police claiming we broke something in a store we didn't even go into.STAY AWAY....FAR AWAY! Scared the family from ever coming back to Mexico who needs that garbage when traveling....nice job

It is a good little shopping area to pick up suntan lotion, medicine, a hat or sun glasses. For real shopping, I would go into town.
